  • Best time to travel

    Zambia predominantly has a wet (starting from November till April) and dry season (from around May to October) instead of summer and winter due to its sub tropical climate.  Most travelers prefer to visit towards the end of the wet season when the Falls are at their peak and the wildlife prolific.  During the dry season the Falls may dry up on the Zambian side and visitors will need to cross to the Zimbabwean side for Fall viewing.

Located on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River, and not far from the famous Victoria Falls, the Royal Livingstone By Anantara evokes the historical Victorian sense of elegance and style.  The luxury hotel was named for the legendary explorer, David Livingstone, who left a permanent footprint on Zambia.  All of its luxury rooms and suites enjoy views of the Zambezi River and guests can enjoy charming high tea rituals, sun-downers overlooking the Falls and fine cuisine.  Guests can enjoy thrilling game drives, river cruises and complimentary access to the Victoria Falls via the Hotel’s private entrance.
